Status: Single

Where You've Seen Him: On Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Nicholas plays Xander Harris, best guy bud to everyone's favorite destroyer of the undead. "He's the comic relief guy on the show. He's got a crush on Buffy and doesn't hide it. And Buffy, she burned down the gymnasium at her old school. A girl like that, what can I say?"

Is He Like Xander: "He's more confident than I was in high school. I was really shy, and I didn't date at all. Now, though, I understand Xander. He's kinda goofy and a wise guy - and so am I."

How He Got His Start: Nicholas did some acting in his teens, including a Clearisil commercial, but always intended to study medicine. Then he snagged a guest spot on Dave's World while working as a production assistant on that show - "They fired my as P.A., but really liked my acting!" - and realized he was a thespian through and through.

Tinsel-Town Twins: "I have an identical twin brother, Kelly. So when I get recognized, he does, too. I talked to him a couple days ago and he said, 'Nick, we got recognized again.' To me, signing autographs is new, and I like it.

Downtime: Simple pleasures suit nice-guy Nick: "I like to sit on my balcony in my rocking chair and look at the Hollywood Hills."

First Kiss: "It was in eighth grade. It sucked because we had friends spying on us. I was embarrassed when we got caught, so I had to break up with her."

Does He Think He's Babe? "I don't think of myself as being hot or cute. It's weird to hear it-I get a bit shy."

Up Next: Buffy is Nick's prime project right now. "I love doing Buffy; it's like a movie every week." We'll be watching!
